I am not typically an IPA fan, so take that for what it is worth. I like this beer becaus it is not overly hoppy, but enough to let you know it's an IPA. Smell is not overly dramatic, but not bad. Taste is where it shines. A malty IPA feel that isn't too hoppy to be a distraction. Floral citrus notes with just a touch of bitter sweet.
